MICKEY ROONEY stepson admitted he owes the Hollywood legend $2.8 million after helping himself to the elderly star’s bank account but has now declared bankruptcy to avoid paying it back.

In a disturbing elder abuse case against Christopher Aber and his wife Christina, it was claimed that the couple had been robbing Rooney blind after wresting control of his personal and financial affairs a few tears back

As The ENQUIRER previously reported the couple even prevented the Rooney, 93, from receiving his daily medication and food when visiting his home in Westlake, California.

Mickey then  testified in a bombshell elderly abuse case before U.S. Congress, telling the court that he feared for his life.

He was subsequently placed under the conservatorship of his lawyer Augustine who began suing to reaclaim Mickey’s money.

But now, the couple has now declared bankruptcy, claiming they do not have the money to seal the $2.8 million deal, which was negotiated. 

Rooney's legal team and conservators are said to be prepping to sue the couple's homeowners' insurance policy to recoup the debt.

Mickey’s film career spans more than eight decades and he received four Academy Award nominations and an honorary Oscar.
